But his nerves are no excuse for some of the tactless jokes he was telling during last night's Oscars!
Seth's painfully long, self-obsessed monologue (above) was solely about him worrying about being a bad host — a self fulfilling prophecy, perhaps? — and included an entire song about seeing boobs, which Seth concluded with a "no-homo" joke.
The rest of the night consisted of one inappropriate joke after the other.
HOWEVER, we will say this: anyone who has ever seen Family Guy, American Dad, or The Cleveland Show knows that Seth stayed true to the comedic format that's made him famous.
All of his popular cartoons feature MAJORLY offensive jokes, and while some gags can go too far, the whole point of the shows (to us at least) is to poke fun at people and push the comfort zone of viewers.
But obviously, that type of comedy did NOT work for the Oscars.
We also find it rather funny that the Academy even asked Seth to host — have they seen Family Guy? He's been SO nasty to almost every celeb in that audience!
